Limited Edition Alex Lifeson R40
The Limited Edition Alex Lifeson R40 Les Paul Axcess is presented by Gibson Custom to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Rush. All 200 guitars in the offer have 5A quilt maple tops and finished with a lush Ruby Red R40. It is also quite noticeable that the rhythm/treble switch access cavity is covered by a Limited Edition “Starman” R40 die-cast medallion.
Alex Lifeson himself is involved in the extensive work of this offer. The restrictions of the classic Les Paul is in the same way given a new definition in the Gibson Custom Alex Lifeson 40th Anniversary Les Paul Axcess Quilt. Les Paul became legendary because of its traditional tones and these tones are present in the Alex R40. This remarkable instrument is very versatile in terms of performance and also features exceptional levels of sonic.
Aside from the traditional tonewoods of Les Paul, two high-output humbucking pickups that contain series/parallel wiring selections through its push-pull volume controls are spotted in the Alex Lifeson Les Paul Axcess. This guitar also features a Floyd Rose licensed unit that can produce a very competent vibrato system. Graph Tech Ghost piezo bridge saddles are also present in the Alex Lifeson Les Paul Axcess. Most importantly, the Alex R40 still carries that classic Les Paul look that has become a tradition for over five decades.
